If you are 70½ or older, you can make a tax-free distribution from your traditional or Roth IRA to Human Rights Watch. This is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and it’s an incredible way to support our pursuit of justice and promotion of human rights around the world.
How it Works
You can donate up to $100,000 each year without incurring income tax on your withdrawal.
Here's the process:
- Contact your plan administrator to direct distributions in the amount of your choosing from your traditional or Roth IRA to Human Rights Watch (EIN #13-2875808). This can be a one-time or recurring gift.
- The distributions go directly to HRW and are not subject to federal income tax.
- Your gift may satisfy your IRA’s annual required minimum distribution (RMD), if applicable.
Making Your Gift
To ensure that your gift is properly processed and that you are listed as the donor of record, please have your QCD directed to the address below:
Human Rights Watch
350 5th Ave., 34th Fl.
New York, NY 10118
